The Art of Current and Effective Web Design

Web Design Tips No Comment

This article is a hymn for the importance of a simple design aesthetic with regard to web design. It is fast becoming the prevailing quality that web designers are being requested to produce in their work.

The advantages of simplicity

 

β€œBeauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity.” – A well known quote attributed to Plato.

 

In wise circles, simplicity is a quality deemed as important as any lofty passionate ambition. It was only after the technological revolution that the term simplicity unreasonably slipped into one with connotations of repressiveness and restraint. The new popularity of simply stated content is a sign of the term regaining its deserved positivity. It was bound to happen sooner or later, to such a true quality.

 

Simple Web DesignIn the world of web design, simplicity has a number of benefits. Initially, the content will be more easily read, which is, after all, the purpose of published content. A high proportion of visitors to websites scan read to before they decide to read the content comprehensively; a simple web designΒ  will result in more visitors relaxing their right hand to enjoy the content they missed while vigorously scanning. The website will be extensively more responsive and less troublesome to navigate. The standards that users have been accustomed to raise these benefits to a critical magnitude.

 

The benefits are commercial as well: the websites depend upon less disk space and bandwidth, and they are easier to maintain and debug. This frees up two of the most valuable conditions that each company strives for: time and money. However, no web designer should be seduced by the false claim that a simple web design is less bothersome than a complicated web design. A simple web design calls for more than simplicity; it must have real semblance in its appeal, and this is not an undemanding quality to achieve in one’s work.

 

How to keep it simple

 

Because something is simple doesn’t mean it is simply earned. Effective simplicity is a painfully difficult affect to achieve in design. It can be achieved without effectiveness easily enough, but a strikingly crafted web design requires more craft than one would imagine. The difficulty of minimalism can be realized by the high supply of failed Hemingway imitators. The trait of effective simplicity is a high ambition indeed.

 

Just as a writer of literary fiction cuts away at a sentence, removing each word that isn’t entirely necessary, a web designer focused on a minimalist design will purge any element of the design that doesn’t contribute to the content or philosophy of the owner of the website.

 

The topical trend of effective simplicity – because it is essential that the web design is current as well as simple – is circular design. The tidy pattern of circular shapes of varying color and size offer a concise segmented feel to a web design. Clear headings and consistency throughout the website – such as all headings in blackened bold, and all subheadings in red – are other features that help contribute to clarity, simplicity, and a higher proportion of contented visitors.

β€œAfter over two years of research we chose Simplio. We are so far very satisfied. These people answered the phone on a Sunday and fixed a problem that was not even their fault. It was the host company which I had chosen that had caused our site to go down.”

I cannot even imagine having another company managing my Presta shopping cart.

β€œThey are now part of the Diastasis Rehab business team after working with them almost a year now. I cannot even imagine having another company managing my Presta shopping cart. After a bad experience with a programmer, I needed a new programmer (one that knew prestashop shopping cart) and most important one that I could trust. Finding all three was a difficult process! Lucky for me I found them. I cannot say enough about the diversity of services that this company provides. Every step of the way they make amazing suggestions to increase my sales and they get back to be right away either by email or phone. They have even created a simple and easy check out program for Presta Shop. They are actually a one stop shop! They updated my SSL, are setting up and changing my server to a dedicated one, setting up streaming of my DVD, website design, creating a specific program for address verification on Presta cart and handled the integration of Presta cart with my fulfillment house. I am now working on developing an APP with them”

Simplio really helped me out of a jam.
